So you want to make your own dentures; here are the basic steps:
- Take a series of impressions and measurements of your jaw, how they relate with each other, and measure the spaces between them.
- Make models, wax forms and plastic patterns of the exact shape and position of the dentures that needs to be made.
- Try the model several times and assess the dentures for color, shape, and fit before casting the final dentures.
- Cast the final denture.
- Make necessary adjustments if needed.
When choosing denture materials to use, make sure you choose the best as you need to produce the best quality denture as possible since you’ll be using it everyday for the rest of the coming years.
If you don’t fancy dentures, why not consider dental implants?
